Looking for a bit of story-driven visual novel flair amongst the heap of indies? Maybe something with actual gameplay to boot? Rose City Games has your back, as The World Next Door is offering a plot-thick experience that will leave you wanting.
 

 
The game follows Jun, a teen rebel who finds herself in a strange parallel world inhabited by a variety of mystical creatures. The game boasts a reputation system, affecting your relationship with characters based on choices you’ve made up to that point, as well as unique real-time puzzle battles where finding matches on a tile grid hurls spells at your foe. There’ll even be a 1v1 versus mode so you can challenge a friend.

The World Next Door launches on Switch in early 2019. Stay wired for more coverage of the Switch Indie presentation.
